Donny van de Beek sent warning ahead of Manchester United debut

Donny van de Beek is set to make his Premier League debut this weekend.

Manchester United signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax in a deal that could rise up to £40million.

Dutch legend Ruud Gullit warned the 23-year old not to become ‘a second Davy Klaassen’ who signed for Everton in 2017 for £24.3million but failed to make a mark in the Premier League and was sold to Werder Bremen later for half the price.

“I look forward to seeing Donny van de Beek at Manchester United,” Ruud Gullit wrote in De Telegraaf.

“What immediately occurred to me is that he should be careful not to become a second Davy Klaassen. Van de Beek is a younger copy of Davy in terms of play.

“Klaassen chose Everton, but the game of those two comes into its own most in an offensive squad, and therefore it should be easier for Donny at United than it was for Klaassen at Everton.

“The latter was snowed under. United plays a game in which Donny can flourish, but at the same time, he remains dependent on his fellow players as attackers.

“And is he allowed to play at his favourite spot? Because it is now occupied by the Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes.

“Van de Beek will also have to get used to being under a magnifying glass every day. Depay can talk about that.”
